    My dryer was making a noise that sounded like a belt problem but them made a rather screeching sound for a while and is back to making a little noise. what do you think and how old do you think it is? I do not know because I bought a house with it already here.

There are 2 clips holding down the main top, approx, 3-4 inches in form each side of the main top where it meets the front panel. With a flat blade screw driver or a putty knife, youll be able to "pop" the clips and tilt the top backwards, form there there ar3 2 5/16screws holding hte front panel on within hte machine.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Hi, I have a Maytag gas Dryer, Legacy series, heavyduty. I clean the lint filter each time used but there is still a build up which I cannot get out unless I remove the filter housing. How do I do this?


you do not have to remove the lint housing all you have to do is go to an applaince store and ask for a lint brush you then take the lint brush and shove it down where the filter goes to loosen the lint turn on your dryer and it will blow it outside
